Blumberg Publishes First New York Appointment of Agent to Dispose of Remains Form

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2007 -- BlumbergExcelsior, the leading supplier of legal forms online and on paper, announces the publication of the first New York State form to appoint an agent for the disposal of one's remains after death. The Blumberg form, P42, follows the requirements of the recently revised General Business Law Section 453. A New York State resident can now appoint an agent to determine the disposal of one's remains that will override the earlier statutory scheme giving priority to family members. This is especially important for individuals in non-marital relationships or who are estranged from their families. It gives an important right to many people who may have felt powerless in this area, both the person granting the power and a loved one who might have been ignored in this personal decision to be made after death.

In introducing the new NY legal form Bob Blumberg, President of BlumbergExcelsior, said, "Recent high profile cases have made us aware of the importance of planning for the disposal of remains. Our new form prevents family litigation related to a loved one's death." The New York Blumberg Law Form for Appointment of Agent to Dispose of Remains is available both as a paper legal form from BlumbergExcelsior and its dealers as well as online.
